Should be fixed now. I donated an “n”


#3

I didn’t know “n” was a vowel :wink:

[QUOTE=Bob;2486316]I didn’t know “n” was a vowel ;)[/QUOTE] “An” is used before words that start with a vowel sound, not necessarily a vowel. If the word is an acronym, a number, or a single letter, that is pronounced starting with a vowel, then “an” is used - otherwise “a” is used.

The letter “n” is pronounced: en

So the correct term is [an “n”], not [a “n”].

Aren’t you the one supposed to know English grammar, since it’s your first language, but Liggy’s and my second or third language?! :bigsmile:

It’s also spelt that way too. :slight_smile:

A lot of people don’t realise that all the letters have spellings as well.

‘h’ is aitch for example.

Interesting to see what a discussion a single letter can generate

[QUOTE=Liggy;2486664]Interesting to see what a discussion a single letter can generate[/QUOTE] Just wait and see what happens, when we start discussing whole words! :smiley:

BOB! I have already spoken to you about this. Is said omething in the Chatbox several weeks ago like, “I was thinking about doing [B]an MBA[/B]”, for which you took me to task.

You obviously weren´t paying attention.

You get detention!

:eek:

Or even complicated things like firmwares or optical drives or even different hardware.


#16

Yup, just imagine having firmware published containing a typo (e.g. flipped bit) in a bad place within the file. :eek:

Tomorrows news headline . . . “(Some big OD maker) ruins millions of drives over a typo!”

[QUOTE=Liggy;2486755][B]Or even complicated things[/B] like firmwares or optical drives or even different hardware.[/QUOTE]or guitar playing :cool:


#18

For me playing a guitar is probably more difficult than patching firmwares.

Fortunately I usually don’t patch code that has the ability to brick a drive. One part of my patch has to be called manually, the other part is only called when there’s a disc inside the drive. So it’s always possible to flash back to the original firmware. :bow:

Not really. I just need a little training for my brain and bitsetting firmwares for the DVD player in my bedroom to play DVD+R :wink:
